Example 1 (Count the fields of a created database table):

This example creates a connection with a Microsoft Access database named 'customerdb.accdb'. When the connection is established, a database table named 'loans' is then created having five (5) fields and set 'id' field as primary key and applies an auto-increment. The number of fields in the table is then iterated and the last count was incremented to display the correct number of fields. A notice that the table is created is then displayed via Message Box.
